This guitar duo is outstanding. They played for 2 hours straight and made beautiful Spanish Flamenco style music! One of the highlights was the song Entre Dos Aguas by Paco de Lucia. I highly recommend this guitar duo!
Arrived well ahead of schedule to set up and sound check. Played beautifully for entire evening (3 hour dinner party) with a short break. Lovely and talented couple greatly enhanced the evening with their melodious music. Highly recommend as a unique way to enhance your event..
